ADATA HV610 1TB USB3.0 HDD - BCCHardware

Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G3 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sat, Feb 23 2013 | 11:04A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Transferring files between 2 computers has been made extremely easy for a while now with flash drives. These devices are small enough to fit in our pocket, deliver fast transfer speeds, and can hold quite a lot of data. Today we are taking a look at one of Kingstons latest flash drives. Announced this year at CES the DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G3 is a USB 3.0 drive that features read speeds of up to 150 MB/s and write speeds up to 70 MB/s.

Intel 525 Series mSATA SSD Performance Roundup @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Feb 21 2013 | 11:04A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the end, the 525 Series drives are really the mSATA version of the 520 Series drives with some additional firmware tweaks that are unique to Intel. Being powered by the SF-2281 controller, they put up stellar numbers when faced with data the controller can compress to turbocharge performance. On the 60GB drives and up, performance is roughly the same in that respect with reads all topping out around the 555MB/s mark and writes in the 520MB/s to 530MB/s range..."

OCZ Vector 256MB SATA III Barefoot 3 SSD - BCCHardware
     Thu, Feb 21 2013 | 7:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ has done it. They`ve taken their not-too-long-ago purchase of Indilinx, matured it and created a controller that does a very good job. The features of this drive are excellent and the performance is even better. The fact that OCZ is seeing the future and putting all of this performance into a 7mm drive is also a very good thing. That ensure it will work on anything from Ultrabooks to Rackmount SAS arrays and everything in between. If you want great, scratch that - excellent performance, you can get it in a 7mm drive from OCZ that is sure to knock your digital socks off. . ."

HighPoint RocketStor 5322 Review
     Wed, Feb 20 2013 | 1:17P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you pair the HighPoint RocketStor 5322 up with the RocketRAID 642L PCIe HBA, it`s tough to find an external storage system that will deliver the performance numbers the RocketStor 5322 is capable of. In just about every test the only configuration that would eclipse the numbers by the HighPoint combo is when the storage drives were mounted internally to the native Intel 6Gb/s headers. By delivering a product of this caliber, the end user can significantly reduce the time it takes to run back ups or just move data from an internal drive to one mounted in the RocketStor 5322. In some of the tests the RocketStor 5322 delivered better performance numbers than the internally mounted drive by way of the higher throughput of the dual eSATA connectivity."

OCZ Vector 256GB Solid State Drive Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Wed, Feb 20 2013 | 7:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just recently we bought to you OCZ`s Agility. A good little drive which was aimed at bring good performance to the masses as a pretty price. We saw the drive test ok but wasn`t anything breaking. It wasn`t meant to be. But if you are looking to bring ultimate performance to your desktop, ultrabook or laptop, than the new OCZ Vector maybe what you are after."

How to Install Google Chrome on the Amazon Kindle Fire HD @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Feb 18 2013 | 9:30A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As you may know I have recently added a Kindle Fire HD to my gadget list. I actually really like the device. You can read my lengthy review on it here. Amazon tries to keep you in their ecosystem with the Kindle Fire HD. As such you can only download apps that are in Amazons App store. This really does limit you. Amazons silk browser is alright, but there are plenty of better browsers available for Android. Amazon blocks them from their app store, but you are still able to install them. In this guide we will show you how to easily install Google Chrome on your Amazon Kindle Fire HD. This process shouldnt take that long and the best part you do not even have to root your Kindle Fire HD! Lets get started!"

Transcend StoreJet 25M3 1 TB External USB 3.0 HDD
     Fri, Feb 15 2013 | 5:16A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall I was quite impressed with this little drive. The small form factor and the durable MIL-spec enclosure combined to form an external drive that will serve you for years. While not always incredibly speedy in the synthetic benchmarks, the real-world performance when copying files to the disk revealed that it can easily hang with the big dogs. You might not win any benchmark wars with this little guy but you will definitely have your files backed up in a very reasonable amount of time!"
